Highlights from vyAkyAnam (Commentary)
kAyOdu … – Oh you who have the desire to keep Sriya:pathi in your heart without separating! Eating the unripened fruits which are yet to mature, the fruits which are dried in the heat and wind, drinking the harsh wind which is blowing, you need not perform penance for a long time, staying amidst five fires.
vAyOdhu … – thillaith thiruchchiththirakUdam where the fame is increasing by the continuous nurturing of the fire in the proper manner by the brAhmaNas who are having abundant natural wealth due to the lack of shortcoming in the vEdham which is recited by mouth.
